Earlier today, Harper’s BAZAAR Singapore Editor-in-Chief Kenneth Goh shared his favourite fragrances that soothe the senses and lift the mood with Angelique Teo on One FM 91.3.

1. If you’re having cabin fever…


Spritz on Chloé’s Nomade Absolu de Parfum ($170 for 50ml), whose medley of woody (oak moss and sandalwood), sweet (Mirabelle plum) and fruity (davana) notes evokes exotic getaways. The intense scent sparks a wanderlust of the mind, racking up the feel-good vibes that will help see you through the travel bans.


Alternatively, Aesop’s Tacit is a unisex scent that uses vetiver, zesty yuzu citrus and basil. The unique combination of ingredients reminds you of the Mediterranean shore — delightfully vibrant and uplifting.

2. If you’re feeling flustered…


Reach for Bvlgari’s Le Gemme Erea EDP ($534 for 50ml), which is designed to calm.  Spicy top notes of green cardamom segue into a heart of calming, grounding frankincense before drying down to a base of sensual Madagascan vanilla, known for its ability to reduce stress and anxiety.

Calvin Klein

For men, Eternity by Calvin Klein for Men will definitely make you feel composed and calm. It has earthy notes such as creamy sandalwood, soothing sage and a mix of green botanicals that instantly uplifts your spirit.

3. If you’re feeling lethargic…


Try Kenzo’s Flower By Kenzo Poppy Bouquet EDP ($134 for 50ml). The latest addition to the Flower By Kenzo fragrance family is an ultra-floral take on the original Flower, which celebrates its 20th birthday this year. This iteration opens on a fresh note with nashi pear before revealing a mood-lifting heart of Bulgarian rose and gardenia, and rounding out with a trail of powdery, sweet almond wood.

4. If you’re having trouble sleeping…

Jo Malone

Give your pillows a generous spray of Jo Malone’s Lavender & Musk Pillow Mist ($55 for 45ml) come bedtime. The relaxing and calming notes of English lavender, harmonised perfectly with the powdery and sensual musk, create a warm, comforting cocoon that paves the way to a good night’s rest.
